"She turned and attacked me," the California Democrat told CNN's "Late Edition" in describing the confrontation during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing.According to the transcript and the aired video as shown on all the news networks and C-Span, Boxer was the one on the attack. Rice simply wouldn't stand still and play "punching bag" to Boxer's lazy attempts to verbally assault her.
"I gave Dr. Rice many opportunities to address specific issues. Instead, she said I was impugning her integrity," Mrs. Boxer said.
"I personally believe this is my personal view that your loyalty to the mission you were given, to sell this war, overwhelmed your respect for the truth," Mrs. Boxer told Miss Rice, who has been President Bush's national security adviser since 2001.Like I said the other day, Boxer got caught in her own lie, and is trying to backpedal and make certain that her lies stick in the media.
Miss Rice responded that she "never, ever lost respect for the truth in the service of anything. It is not my nature. It is not my character."
"And I would hope that we can have this conversation and discuss what happened before and what went on before and what I said without impugning my credibility or my integrity," Miss Rice said.
It won't work, Senator. And you continue to look more and more like a raving lunatic, and less an honorable statesman, the more you keep munching on your shoes.
